Tony Harris Returns To Comics With Blood Blister In January 2017, From AfterShock

Tony Harris famously flamed out earlier this year over a return to the kickstarted Roundeye project that, again, seems to have bitten the dust. After a surprise appearance in Earth 2 Society, he is now returning to comics in 2017 with a new series written by Phil Hester, Blood Blister.

Sin is a joke to Brandon Hull. Morality a crutch for the weak, laws mere tools to be abused.

How can you be saved when the evil possessing you is your own soul? Opening a jarring window on to a world of horror from the writer of The Coffin, Firebreather and Deathstroke and the Eisner Award-winning artist of Ex Machina and Starman.
